Natural cosmetics

Hi,

So, I have finished my master thesis on natural cosmetics. After that, I moved to Switzerland. I have always had a wish to start production of these products. Does anyone know where to start from, in terms of how to register, how to sell, are there any specific requirements to be met?

Thx in advance to everyone.

Re: Natural cosmetics

In another post you mention you're from a non-EU country. Which permit do you have? That may determine whether you're allowed to start a business.

Re: Natural cosmetics

I have no idea on requirements related to cosmetics, but you might find some helpful info in these threads on how to start your business:

Starting a business in Switzerland

Einzelfirma & Gmbh details in Zurich? [starting a business]

Starting a business with Permit B

If you're living in rented accommodation, check your lease. It may not permit you to run a business from the flat.

Re: Natural cosmetics

HI, just wanted to comment here. There are a couple women entrepreneurs doing this already. There is a Woman Entrepreneur group in Zurich, I think called "Woman's Expo" and usually they have an annual meeting (exhibition) at the Hyatt I think, where I first saw their one of them with an exhibtion stand for thier natural cosmetic line.


Look them up and try networking there - they are very supportive as a network, you'll find them very wiling to point you in a direction and share experiences - my wife at the time was doing here first start up and found that community and from time to time still engages with them, can only say positive things about them.


All the best and good luck - don't let any one distract you from your vision, find your support group and move move move.
